creating database users

i am busy with a database thing. to get this used on a larger server i want to create a username for this database only.
so i create one at install (php event on first run) which executes this on the database:

$sql = "grant ALL on ".DATABASE_NAME.".* to '".$usn."' identified by '".$pwd."' with grant option;";

the 'with grant option' i added to test if it helps (it doesn't)
- the user is created on the database no problem.
- when i try to use it in the next step, it fails like this:

Warning: mysqli::mysqli(): (HY000/1045): Access denied for user 'BOREHOLES'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in D:\bhdb\www\php\_dbmysql.php on line 32
could not connect: 1045

when i check the database users with phpmyadmin, the user does exist with rights as i specified.

yet i can't use it...

what am i missing?


i also tried creating the username with no password.
i also tried giving the username global access.
i tried at this point to use root, and it worked as it would.
